Adopt a dog with Dog Rescue Newcastle: April 17

Libby: 8 weeks, Mastiff X

This is Libby, she is an eight-week-old mastiff-cross.

Libby is timid at first but is very quirky once she gets comfortable. She would definitely benefit from having another dog in the house as she loves her foster siblings, but would also be fine as an only pup. She has very pretty eyes and loves to snuggle.

Libby is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a home environment. She has been very well socialised with other puppies and adult dogs (small and large) and gets along well with them all. She's met lots of people and is friendly and affectionate with them.

GREAT AT FETCH: Molly is an 18-month-old  boxer-cross-Shar Pei who has boundless energy and is looking for someone to match her effervescent personality.

Libby will grow up to be a medium/large dog. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. It would also be good if someone in the household doesn't work full time.

Libby needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. 

SHY BUT QUIRKY: Libby is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a home environment.

As Libby is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because she'll need to be returned to our vet for desexing when she's approximately five months old.

Molly: 18 months, boxer X Shar Pei

This 18 month, boxer-cross-Shar Pei has boundless energy and is looking for someone to match her effervescent personality.

Molly is in the full throws of adolescence. She adores her toys and has a great fetch and retrieve. Her rubber chicken is her favourite thing, but she also loves to play tug and chase a ball. Molly has good basic manners and did go to puppy school, but when you're a bouncing boxer, sometimes life is just way more fun when you don't come back when called and you try to make your people keep playing by jumping up or grabbing their shoes (with feet still in them)!

As such, Molly has become a bit much for her human sisters to cope with in the yard. She doesn't mean any harm, but she does need bigger, more confident humans to give her some firm and consistent training. She has zero recall at the moment so it will pretty much be mandatory for her new family to lock in some good manners in the form of formal training after adoption. 

Molly is not a beach dog and really does not like water. She has a very fine coat and definitely needs to be allowed to sleep inside.
